Photo: Osprey Packs Stoner Mesa Mountain Bike Ride

July 25th, 2012

A group of Osprey team members, friends and family hit the trail for a Sunday ride at Stoner Mesa in San Juan National Forest, Colorado. After 26.5 miles—more than half of that climbing—the crew stopped for a quick photo and some much-needed refreshments.

Cheers to finding some singletrack in your neck of the woods this week!

Soaking Up The Last Of San Juan Summer Skiing

June 25th, 2012

The trusty Outback delivers us to the goods

It has been a tough spring here in the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado. Spring was a complete dud in terms of moisture and delivered little from the skies except numerous big dust storms. The dust made the already dwindling snowpack melt even faster leaving us with conditions that more resemble late July than early June. What can you do but make the best of a bad hand? This past weekend I loaded up the trusty Subaru Outback for a drive up to Clear Lake above Silverton. Numerous long couloirs lead to aprons that end at the lakes edge making for some of the most scenic runs in the regions.

Enjoying Singletrack in Colorado’s Indian Summer

High speed single track

by Sven Brunso

A few weeks back Mother Nature gave those of us in SW Colorado a “glimpse” of what lies ahead. After an unseasonable week of wet, cool weather, the clouds lifted to reveal a healthy dose of white gold above 11,000 feet. Some grabbed their skis and rushed into the alpine in an effort to get their fix, but I opted to wait until the odds of face shots exceed those of core shots.

Friday Round-Up: Osprey Backcountry Adventure in Photos

May 20th, 2011

Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. We kicked off the month with 5 Point Film Festival, and we’re counting down the days to Mountainfilm in Telluride, so this month we’re devoting it to… you guessed it: film! Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!

We know that we dedicated this month to showing our favorite film clips on our Friday Round-Up, but we had so much fun on our backcountry trip last week, that we decided to post a photo gallery this week instead. Each year, we rally a group of our Osprey staff, reps and friends and head to the backcountry near our headquarters in Cortez, Colo. This time we hit up Monument Valley and Bullet Canyon in SE Utah. Here’s just a sampling from our adventure. To see the full slideshow, please check out our Flickr page here.

Happy Friday!
